I've become a big fan of appliqués in the past 5 years.
In this tutorial I want to show you what you can accomplish with this simple sewing technique.
Don't be surprised if I go through the steps quickly. In the lower tutorials everything has been described.
Basics / other tutorials can be found here:
How to work step by step:
What materials do you need:
- pattern/ reference
- fabric and thread
- Interfacing /Interfacing double-sided and a iron
- sewing mashine/ needle
- fabric paint
Now as in appliqué tutorial reinforce your fabric with interfacing. It [interfacing] shouldn't come off.
Paint the colour on it next. Here I used metallic-olive and metallic-white. One color per fabric.
Use a copy of your pattern and draw all the lines on the fabric.
(NEVER cut the original!)
Tip: You can also draw the pattern before the white paint.
You can start stitching one time the frame for example with zigzag (see appliqué tutorial)
Now our prolonged step: Cut it out carefully. In this case you may not cut the seam, otherwise everything goes on.
And don't forget all the threads. ^.~
Place the white pattern on the green fabric. You can clue it or get pin up.
In double-sided interfacing just put it ironed, then it will not slip.
Sew a second time with the zigzag along the pattern.
For Step 5 I sewed with white thread a line.
With a decorative green thread I repeat twice the zigzag stitch and sew along the line from step 4.
It may happen that you have to sew several pieces of fabric together.
Please note that the pattern is not interrupted (if possible).
I found old green pleather in my fabric wardrobe. Perfect for my belt.
Cut the pleather in the same size as the color fabric and sew it all together.
With the bias tape is the belt "closed" and decorated.
As a little extra, I stitched the bias tape with zigzag.
And so it may look like (combined with stones)
